How is the culture of calamity impacting clinical practice? Both patients, and the therapists who listen to stories of their persistent anxiety while struggling in the same political and world environment, are reported to have chronically elevated stress reactions that can negatively impinge on every aspect of life. It sometimes feels as though all the rules have been thrown out and a new set of indecipherable ones imposed. Things that were known to be socially and interpersonally unacceptable are broadcast with impunity. In this sea of chaos it is hard to know friend from enemy, to feel free to talk, to believe in a stable future.

NAAP’s distinguished speakers will address these issues and demonstrate through clinical vignettes some of the ways therapeutic practice has been impacted, and approaches to mitigating stress responses and remaining centered. They will discuss the psychodynamics of narcissistic sociopathy, how groups led by these personality types have fared historically, and how they might react positively and manage to remain healthy and self-directing.

The much sought after Gradiva Awards, celebrating outstanding contributions to creativity and exploration of the human experience, will be presented at a delicious luncheon banquet.

NEW this year:  The NAAP Analysts-in-Training Writing Awards will be presented and described at the luncheon.
